Pleasure Island is now home to a new links-style track that opened for play in 2002, replacing the old course that faded away around 1980. With its unique location on the island of pleasure in the intercoastal waterway and Lake Sabine, this 6,900-yard track has a bit of character, with loads of donated Florida palm trees as well as uncharacteristic elevation changes that were the result of the dredged ship channel. In fact, the island itself came about in the early 1900s as the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers cut the ship channel and piled mud from the bottom of Sabine Lake.

Getting there : Once on Pleasure Island, look for the water tower on that looks like a golf ball sitting on a tee.
